Join us as we unlock the doors to the Geoffrey Bawa Archives and invite you on an intimate tour of No.11, the house and office of Geoffrey Bawa, accompanied by a special viewing of its architectural drawings from the archive, conducted by Shayari de Silva, curator of the Geoffrey Bawa art and archival collection. The evening will end with refreshments on the terrace.
The drawings in the Geoffrey Bawa archive bring to life the spatial quality negotiated by place through intricate hand-drawn renderings that are iconic to the practice of Geoffrey Bawa. And what better way to start one's experience of these drawings than by encountering it within the space it depicts.
